Contents of the Summary Report

The participant summary report is designed to be shared with people without access to, and potentially unfamiliar with Alooba. It includes the following sections:

  1. General Information: This section provides basic details about the participant, such as their name, contact information, overall score, the dates when they were invited to and completed the assessment, and their relative performance to other participants of the same assessment.

  3. Test Sections: The report includes a separate section for each test included in the assessment.

Additionally, the duration spent by the participant on each test is also shown.

    For instance, the section of the Concepts & Knowledge test could look like:

Can't see the Download Summary Report icon for a candidate or employee?

There are a few scenarios where the Download Summary Report icon will not be available.

  1. Participant hasn't Completed all tests within the assessment. As mentioned above, the summary report will only be available when the participant's assessment status is Completed. If the participant hasn't submitted all tests within the assessment you will need to wait for them to complete the assessment before being able to download the report.
  2. The assessment status is Requires Evaluation. If the assessment contained a test that doesn't have automated grading, such as the free response test, someone will need to grade each of the responses to finalize their score. Once all ungraded questions have been given a score their assessment status will automatically update to Completed and the Download Summary Report icon will become available.
  3. Candidate Cloaking is enabled. If candidate cloaking is enabled, you will not be able to download the summary report. For more information about candidate cloaking read our Reducing Unconscious Bias in Candidate Selection with Candidate Cloaking article. If personal or organizational cloaking is enabled, you can turn off the Candidate Details Hidden toggle, which will make the Download Summary Report icon appear. If assessment level cloaking has been enabled, the toggle will not be shown, and the summary reports will not be available until the assessment level cloaking is disabled.


The participant summary report empowers recruiters, hiring teams, and L&D managers with an overview of individual participant performances. The summary reports can be easily downloaded from the participant's page on Alooba to be shared with your colleagues that may not have access to Alooba, or filed in your ATS, HR, or LTS system.

The summary report provides a very high-level overview of their performance, and we still recommend accessing Alooba to see the full details of each participant's performance.
